1. Suggested revised strada rear fender on new models. Could sell this part to strada owners.

2. Same with a fUll coverage chain guard.
Agreed, a guard like the Multistrada would be very nice. My touring jacket would appreciate it too!!!

This is from the Owner's manual

Turn indicators (automatic reset)
Turn indicators are automatically reset by the instrument panel.
After activating one of the two turn indicators, they can be deactivated using the reset button (4). If the turn indicator is not “reset" manually, the instrument panel will automatically switch it off after the motorcycle has travelled 500 m (0.3 miles) from when the turn indicator was activated.
The counter for the distance travelled for automatic deactivation is activated at speeds below 80 Km/h (50 mph).
If the calculation of the distance for automatic deactivation is activated and then the motorcycle exceeds a speed of 80 km/h (50 mph), the calculation is interrupted and will restart when the speed returns below the indicated threshold.

This is my only complain of this bike.

This function is useless.
- Who drives below 80 km/h?
- And if you do, 500 m with turning lights on is a long distance.

Has anyone been able the modify this function, removing the speed limit or the distance?

Agree, quite useless. I just kill the turn signal right before I begin my turn as I hate being the guy who leaves his blinker on. I'm also one of the few riders that signals every lane change and am pretty good about canceling and checking that I didn't leave it on.

A fuel gauge is my main thing - so far the bike has been very reliable.

The curious thing about the fuel gauge - or lack of it - is that the sensor that detects low fuel is pretty consistent - 4 more nodes on that circuit and you have a gauge. I'm pretty sure that all bike instrument panels use stock chips so a bar gauge is built in there somewhere.

What I'm getting at is it would have required very little effort - and it's a pain in the ass not having it.

Otherwise - I've done 3 1000 mile plus backroad camping trips this year and it's been wonderful.

I'm starting to think that lack of fuel gauge and gear indicator are marketing ploys to get you to upgrade down the line. That might save a little money on the display and wiring but not enough that it would have drastically affected price.

Clutch

On the other hand, most cars have gone to electronic throttle and nobody noticed a thing.. Idk, food for thought I guess.

I do like the new clutch. Ducati didn't use hydraulic clutch on these for a reason, the new clutch the 821 has didn't need it. Hydraulic clutch is beneficial on different clutch with heavier spring rates to handle higher torque outputs, piston size and outlets can be adjusted for easier pull. I think the clutch on the hypermotard is a breakthrough, the lightest slipper clutch i've felt so far. It does have a strange feel to it, I think they modified it on the ducati monster for less experienced riders.
Mine was very difficult to handle, especially when the engine was cold. After a few thousand Kilometers it is much easier.

Are you talking about the spanner wrench to adjust chain tension? Or the ignition key?

I paid $15 for a spanner.

Here's a peeve: the engine cases are made of plastic - or look like plastic, and only vaguely hint at a motor underneath. For all I hear about Italian attention to detail, I think Suzuki has them well beaten in this area. I don't lose sleep over it but it could have been nicer.

Another problem with those plastic engine cases: The bottle-type brush I use to get in the frame nooks and crannies recently scratched up all those surfaces. I guess the wire core that holds the bristles became exposed. Normal eye wouldn't catch the scratches but I almost cried.
